Will this poster emotionally scar my little brother?

I have this NSFW poster
in my room. I study sexuality and art. My mom, grandmother, and 6 year old sibling are visiting me, and will want to see my room. Should I take the poster down?

I don't want to take it down; I don't think it's anything to be embarrassed about, especially since I'm getting a degree its subject matter -- my room has stacks and stacks of books on sex, anyway. My mom has seen it at my house already and sort of laughed it off. My grandmother will be appeased by "I am studying this, is why." My little brother has no reason to give it any more attention than all the other cool stuff in my room. Still, I want to make sure I'm not just being stubborn in my zeal to normalize sexuality. What do you lot think?
Sub-question: if I do leave it up, what's a one-sentence way to explain this picture to a 6 year old before casually moving to other topics? "Adults having fun?"
